We claim that for animal studies Bienta is strictly following internationally accepted guidelines for ethical animal care.  We developed a network of verified in vivo contractors for pharmacokinetic and acute toxicity studies. These are all selected, qualified research labs within the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU) or National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine (NAMN).

Since all these institutions are the members of two Academy systems, they adhere to the guidelines for ethical animal care, according to the following national and international requirements:

1. European Convention for the Protection of Vertebrate Animals used for Experimental and Other Scientific Purposes (Strasbourg, 1986)

2. WMA Declaration of Helsinki – Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects

3. GLP regulations (the lab has no formal GLP certification, but adheres to GLP guidance in running studies)

4. Law of Ukraine “On the Protection of Animals from Cruelty”
